About coins and subtitles:
It MUST be an urban legend, but I have heard that the French version of
a Sam Fuller WWI movie turned an anguished shout of "Tanks!" into
I've been watching "The Pallisers" on video, and I can't help wondering
what Plantagenet Palliser, whose great cause was decimal coinage, would
make of the euro.
Several of the characters referred slightingly to his interest in the
"tenpenny shilling," which I always take personally.
